A mom posted this question on our Facebook page and I told her that I'd post it here too. She needs part-time child care so she can work a part-time job. The problem is, her workday ends after most day care centers close.
Here's her question:
I am a stay at home mom trying to go back to work part time. How do I find child care for my eight-month-old? All the day care ( center or in a home) seem to require five days and pick up by 6 p.m. or 6:30 p.m. I need care two to three days a week from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. We are trying to get ahead or save a little ... not spend my check on child care and gas.
